|Apr-21-06|| ||marcwordsmith: 16. . . Be6 wins for Black??|
|Apr-21-06|| ||Zenchess: 16...Re8?? was the losing move because it allows the Ng5 fork in key variations. 16...Bd7! would have foiled the attack and won and game for Black.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||shor: what about 21...qxg2+ followed by Bd5+
so that black will trade his queen, rook and bishop and be saved from mate?
|Apr-21-06|| ||SJP: With best defence, White mates in 15:
1. Nxh7+ Kg8 2. Nf6+ Kf8 3. Ba3+ Re7 4. Nh5 Ke8 5. Nf6+ Kd8 6. Bxe7+ Kxe7 7. Nd5+ Ke8 8. Nxc7+ Kf8 9. Bxe6 Kg8 10. Bxf7+ Kxf7 11. Qe6+ Kg7 12. Qe7+ Kh6 13. Ne6 g5 14. Qxg5+ Kh7 15. Qg7#

1. Nxh7+ Kg8 2. Nf6+ Kf8 3. Ba3+ Re7 4. Nh5 Ke8 5. Nf6+ Kd8 6. Bxe7+ Kxe7 7. Nd5+ Ke8 8. Nxc7+ Kf8 9. Bxe6 Kg8 10. Bxf7+ Kxf7 11. Qe6+ Kg7 12. Qe7+ Kh6 13. Ne6 g5 14. Qxg5+ Kh7 15. Qg7#>
SJP, I am somewhat confused by your line. What is black's move prior to Nxh7+ ? Unless I am missing something it looks like Cody is losing but still has a bit of life left after 21... Nc2
|Apr-21-06|| ||United33: The only way to prevent mate is 21...Qxg2+ 22.Kxg2 Bh3+ 23.Kxh3 Rxe5 (both queen die) 24.d4xe5 Nc2 25.Nxh7.... and now the position is white has 5 pawns, 2B, and 1N, black has 5 pawns, 1R, and 1N. and white gonna win this game for sure due to better pawn and bishop position. and fritz9 give +3,5 points for white, that is a huge advantage, and there is no hope for everyone to change +3,5 points.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||Deefstes: <SJP> I'm not sure I understand your proposed line. From which position do you start? Is your move 6...Kxe7 not illegal?|
|Apr-21-06|| ||Benzol: Name reminds of that group from the sixties, Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen.|

|Apr-21-06|| ||dakgootje: Re8 just looked wrong...
<shor> 21. ...Qxg2 22Kxg2 Bh3 23. Kxh3 Rxe5 24. dxe5 i assume you mean, as 22. ...bd5 is just followed by Qxd5... But even then black is probably still pretty lost, though not in a way many of us would resign yet, so there probably is some kind of hidden fast-winning line for white...
|Apr-21-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Whoa, amazing swindle! Nice pick for GOTD, <chessgames.com>!|
|Apr-21-06|| ||Jack Kerouac: <Benzol:What happened to the Commander?> Still touring on an irregular basis.Was in Detroit about 4 or 5 months ago.Lost Planet Airmen was taken from an old 50's sci-fi movie title.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||SJP: I'm sorry my earlier analysis was confusing. It turns out I had messed up the position. I am re-analysing it now.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||SJP: The first thing to note is that the greedy 21...Bxc4? allows a forced mate by 22. Nxh7+ K68 3. Nf6+ Kf8 4. Ba3+ c5 (a stubborn move) 5. Bxc5+ Kg7 6. Nxe8++ Kh6 7. Bf8+ then mate on g7. |
It is clear that 21...Nc2 is the best move, preventing checks on a3.
From this, therefore, I purport the best line as follows. 22. Nxh7+ Kg8 (best) 23. d5 (threat 24. Qh7#) Qxg2+! 24. Kxg2 Bh3+ 25. Kxh3 Rxe5 26. Nf6+ Kf8 27. Bxe5 Rc8 28. Kg3 a5, leaving White with the Bishop pair for the Rook and a slight advantage because of this and the more active King. Essentially, White wins!
Pertaining to the mistake which allowed this, as Zenchess correctly states was 16...Re8?.
I hope this analysis is clearer.

|Mar-02-10|| ||Marmot PFL: <16...Bd7! would have foiled the attack and won and game for Black.>|
16...Bd7 17 Nf3 Qxh1 18 Ng5 g6 19 Qxe5 Rae8(?) 20 Qf6 threatening d5 or Bxf7+, and how does black defend? 19...Qd1 is better, but after 20 h3 white should have at least a draw.
